The latest at Goulburn Airport

So that's now $20 to land, $20 to taxi in, $10 to park and $20 to taxi out...

And that is precisely why no public infrastructure should ever be privatised. I hope the operators go broke.

Hey! How about that! We found someone that charges more than Warnervale!

Although it lists "Taxiway Delta", yet the AIP chart - which forms part of our preflight planning and is only available from "approved aeronautical data providers" - does not list a taxiway D, only A,B & C.

He's not quite charging LAX rates yet, but he's getting there.

Is this the taxi way between the private hangars? If so it is a new approach to the access charges previously thrown out via legal action.

AC,
Hilariously, in this case, that is not going to happen, there is no shortage of cheap land closer to town, and supply well exceeds demand.
Not to mention the water "supply".
Tootle pip!!

It's the reason I chose another AD to store and operate my aircraft from. It's really not a friendly place at all.

Can’t glean much from their website about anything including charges.A total joke like everything else they’ve done since taking over.

In a previous life I had a Tiger Moth and was very friendly with the late Dick Nell who was an institution around Goulburn Airport . Dick had a way of doing favours for people in the hope of being treated well in return. When it looked like Ferrara was going to get control of the airport, Dick warned me that he never repaid any favours and would be a disaster for the users. Looks like he was correct!

These charges arenít in the ERSA, how would you find out what charges apply to you before arriving? Call AD Ops?

The Taxiway Delta charge is not on Avdata’s website nor is it on the Goulburn Airport website. So all we seem to have is a flimsy sign. Looks like a desperate attempt when all else has failed to produce results.

If it's not in the ERSA, or on AvData, is it even enforceable in any way?

Might be some VHF interference when taxiing on D anyway...

I attended a CASA safety seminar in Moruya tonight and was told the cost of the litigation referred to by Vag277 was in the vicinity of $800000 and was lost by the owner. Can anybody confirm this?
